This constitutes a situation where a contract cannot be said to have been created through the freewill of the parties to the contract. This may occur when parties to a contract are not of equal bargaining power or social status to the extent that one exercises pressure on the other party in order to create the contract.

Contract between a lawyer and his clients, guardians and their wards, spiritual leaders and their followers and so on may give cause for suspicion especially if the benefit of the contract tilts more to one side. Undue influence, if successfully proved, may nullify a contract because contracts are supposed to reflect voluntary wishes of the parties.
